Mike Ettling

Chief Executive Officer

I’m a CEO, Investor, builder of world-class teams, champion of diversity and continuous learner, and I’m passionate about people. From my first leadership role in the Boy Scouts, to exec positions in the tech industry, my career has revolved around elevating, engaging and enabling people. I joined Unit4 to get the market as excited in our unique approach to enterprise tech as I am. We’re building systems that change how people experience work, and the impact will be huge.

Outside of work I’m a family man, a Liverpool supporter, and a proud South African.

Gordon Stuart

Chief Financial Officer

I’ve worked across a diverse range of businesses serving global markets and truly believe that finance is critical to leading change. The CFO’s leadership responsibilities and opportunities have grown beyond managing finances, measuring performance and delivering reports. I learned early on that a holistic understanding of the business and industry is essential to driving growth and success.

I spend my discretionary time with my family and watching and playing sports – some more successfully than others.

Partner, Global Head Private Equity Technology, Partners Group

I am responsible for Partner Group's investments in technology globally and use this privilege to support exceptional teams with proven solutions in enhancing business processes. Having started my career in the US as a growth investor more than 20 years ago, I have a lifelong passion for the dynamism in the tech sector. I am an enthusiastic and excited participant in Unit4's journey ahead.

When I am not using my compute cycles for understanding how tech can create outsized investment returns, I try to be engaged with contemporary art. I love to cook, read and travel with my family to explore new places.

I’ve spent more than 30 years within sales, marketing and operations, working for some of the world’s leading technology companies. During this time, I have enjoyed working with a diverse group of people driving innovation, delivering revenue and building strong, collaborative leadership teams. I have a real passion for creating partnerships with customers throughout their digital transformations, delivering consistent results using non-traditional approaches.

Passions outside of work include spending time with my family at home in Austin, travelling around Texas Hill Country enjoying all the unique shops, restaurants and the sights. I also spend a lot of time doing lots of different classes on my Peloton.
